This may be the best location in Oslo. Quiet, peaceful, and 20 minutes from Slottsparken and the Royal family's castle. The reception staff are very friendly and helpful. There is free wifi at the reception area only.
HOWEVER, for US$150/night, I would expect clean bathrooms and shower. We knew we would have to share, but assumed that the showers would be clean. The floors were slimy and dirt filled and the bathrooms were so far away it was tempting to squat next to the cabin (no comment on if this happened at 3 a.m. or not). Showers cost extra, but parking is free.
If you head into Oslo, there is a bus that will take you there. The bus is HIGHLY recommended as parking is so expensive. The bus also takes you directly to the Royal Family's park and home. Very pleasant for a picnic or a walk.
Tip: buy the bus ticket at the front desk for a significant discount
